Closeted in offices, with windows that don't open and air conditioning that doesn't work, we try desperately to straddle that line between what's comfortable and what's professionally acceptable. Strappy vests, flip-flops and micro-minis just don't cut it. But while a linen suit looks good at 8am, by lunchtime it's telling the world you don't own an iron and keep your clothes screwed up in little balls under your bed. However, for us ladies, the killer is the huge expanse of flesh that is our legs.
These tights promise to keep you cool in the heat. Too good to be true?
Stocking - Wikipedia
Historically, even though the word sock is at least as ancient in origin, what men normally wore were often referred to as stockings, probably especially when referring to longer hose. Before the s, stockings were made of woven cloth. The first knitting machines were for making stockings. A polished cotton called lisle was common, as were those made in the town of Balbriggan. Before the s, stockings, if worn, were worn for warmth.
